Squatting, toilet converters

by Lucy
(NJ in a lost world)

Maybe you are on to something. My husband travels all over world, and he has mentioned about such devices like the toilet converter or toilet squatting platform.

He also talked about doing it by just standing and spreading your legs -- in this way, you don't need to squat.

I have always responded that you can't stand and empty your bowels. Squat -- yes, stand - no.

What do you think?

(Answer: Lucy, it may be possible to evacuate in the standing position, with the legs apart. However, this is not the usual way as intended by nature. Human beings are designed to evacuate in the squatting position.)
